Bangkok, Thailand, September 13, 2017 – FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graca has been confirmed to be the guest of honour of the 22nd AVC General Assembly, which is due to take place at Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre Hotel at CentralWorld in Bangkok on November 15, 2017.

The significant meeting will be held to approve the agendas and minutes of the previous AVC General Assembly in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia two years ago, to review tasks managed by the AVC Zonal Associations and proposals presented by the Technical Committees and Council as well as to exchange ideas between the federations and prepare comprehensive AVC’s development plans for future growth of the sport in the continent.

AVC President Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser will preside over the opening ceremony on November 15, with AVC Executive Committee Members including AVC Executive Vice-President Mr Essa Hamza, FIVB and AVC Honorary Life President Mr Wei Jizhong and FIVB Executive Vice-President Mrs Rita Subowo, AVC Board of Administration Members and representatives from AVC affiliated national federations in attendance.

A total of 47 federations have so far confirmed their participation in the 22nd AVC General Assembly comprising 10 federations from the Central Zone, 9 from Oceania, 8 from Eastern Zone, 10 from Southeast Asia and 10 from Western Zone.

In his invitation letter to presidents of AVC affiliated national federations, AVC President Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser has asked for their kind cooperation to send their representatives to the meeting, citing that AVC has its sights firmly set on seeing 100% of attendance and proxies.

“I hope all our affiliated national federations will attend this significant meeting. If you really have difficulty sending your representatives to the meeting, it’s necessary that you send a proxy letter designating another federation to represent you at the General Assembly,” Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser was quoted as saying in the letter.

In terms of some related information on the meeting, arrival of all affiliated federation delegates is due on November 14. The 22nd AVC General Assembly will take place the following day, with departure of all affiliated federation delegates on November 16.

The Thailand Volleyball Association will provide transportation between Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok and the hotel, while delegates must make an enquiry at their own Government Office for Foreign Affairs if they need visa applications for a visit to Thailand. However, the AVC Headquarters in Bangkok is ready to provide them the invitation letter to obtain their visas.

Reconfirmation of all affiliated federation delegates to participate in the 22nd AVC General Assembly is scheduled for September 1, 2017. AVC President Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser has eyes on all affiliated federation delegates to attend the biennial meeting for the sake of development and promotion of the sport in the continent.
